Best baseball pitcher ever to play was left off the list.
Satchel Paige. Most of his accomplishments came after the age of 40.
John Stockton regular with triple doubles in the playoffs after the age of 40.
How about f*cking Laird Hamilton
In my opinion though...pitchers nowadays (i.e. Jamie Moyer) should not even be mentioned since they compete once a week at most...the guy pitched in like 30 games over a an entire season including the playoffs. Not too demanding if you ask me. And golfers, seriously...don't even include that because that is just retarded. I played golf. I could and did play 36 holes a day and never fatigued...any sport you can play better while high is not really physically demanding and therefore should not be mentioned with greatest athletes after 40.
